Article Source: http://www.nbcnews.com/id/44008827/ns/health-oral_health/
Through this health news article, different ways that you can whiten and brighten your smile are discussed with the help of food and beverages. Some smile enhancing foods and drinks include:
- Crunchy foods- foods like apples, celery, and carrots work as an abrasive scrub for teeth and promote the production of saliva.
- Strawberries- these berries contain malic acid, which naturally can whiten teeth.
- Oranges and Pineapples- the acid in these fruits can whiten the surface of teeth. In addition, the acid can kill bacteria that lead to bad breath and tooth decay.
- Cheese and Dairy- dairy products contain lactic acid, which can protect against tooth decay resulting in a more beautiful and healthy smile.
There are foods and drinks to avoid as well that can cause staining to occur on your teeth. Coffee, tea, red wine, soda, soy sauce, and blueberries can all stain your teeth, so proceed with caution. Drinking water when consuming a staining agent can reduce the amount of staining that occurs.
